Coming off a 67 point (36 goals, 21 assists) season with Rimouski Ocean of the QMJHL, the Bruins envisioned Caron as an important piece for the future. Since signing him an entry level deal in March 2010, the Bruins have given Caron every opportunity to earn a spot on the NHL roster. However, Caron has repeatedly failed to live up to his potential. Despite his being a burly forward who plays a smart two way game, and is strong defensively, and heavy on the puck, Caron has played passively during every opportunity given to him thus far in his career. In addition to passive play, Caron continuously appears to be too slow for the NHL, plain and simple. Heading into this season, the Bruins have a spot open on their third line, and it is more than likely that Caron will once again be afforded the opportunity to win a...

Boston Bruins will win the Atlantic Division

Winning divisional titles is a common trend in Boston Bruins franchise history. In the past five seasons, the Bruins have been divisional champions three times (2008-09, 2010-11, 2011-12). The realignment of the NHL to Atlantic, Central, Metropolitan, and Pacific has forced more compacted and difficult divisions. Previously, there were six divisions holding five teams. Now, with...

Young, New Bruins Vying for Spot on Bruins’ Third Line, Know They Must Be ‘Offensively Gifted, Defensively Aware’ (Video)

Loui Eriksson Excited to Make Bruins Debut, Play Alongside Brad Marchand (Video)

Jarome Iginla certainly made his mark Monday night in his first game with the Bruins, scoring twice and meshing nicely with first-liners Milan Lucic and David Krejci. On Tuesday, Loui Eriksson will attempt to do the same. The team’s other high-profile acquisition will make his Bruins debut against the Capitals, replacing Tyler Seguin, whom the B’s traded to Dallas in exchange...

Bruins ‘experimenting’ with Chara in front of the net on power play

He’s big. Huge actually. So it would seem to make sense that Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara would be placed in front of the opposition’s net during the power play. At 6’9″ and 255 pounds he not only provides a massive screen for opposing goalies but would prove difficult – perhaps impossible at times – for defenders to try and get him out of the way. “We’re tinkering...

Bruins beat Montreal in Preseason Opener

  Montreal, Quebec – After a heartbreaking game 6 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks last June in the Stanley Cup finals, it has been a short but very active off-season for the Boston Bruins as management re-tooled the roster, preparing for what they hope will be another deep run in 2013-2014.

RECAP: Bruins LIK Habs in Preseason Opener... Am I Right?

Sure. It's only a preseason game, but any time the Bruins beat the Habs, it's a good day. Doesn't matter if it's mostly NHLers or mostly AHLers doing it. And tonight's win was pretty. Jarome Iginla had two goals on six shots (the dude's willing to shoot all night and day). Lucic had three assists. Krejci was the slacker of the LIK line with only one...
